Actor-turned-TV-presenter Mario Lopez is to become a first-time father - his girlfriend Courtney Mazza is pregnant.

The "Saved By The Bell" and "Nip/Tuck" star, who is the daily host of showbiz news program "Extra," met and fell in love with Mazza while working with her on Broadway in "A Chorus Line" in 2008.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Lopez said, "We're very happy. Courtney and I couldn't be more excited. I've waited my whole life to be a dad; this is a true blessing."
